Cosmic dust particles evolve cyclically: chemically, physically and dynamically. The evolution of the dust particles traces out paths in which the universe recycles material, with analog processes to the daily recycling steps with which we are familiar: production, storage, processing, collecting, consumption, and discarding. Scientific observations and measurements of cosmic dust provide an important view onto the universe's recycling process, where we "see" dust in different dust populations: in the clouds of the interstellar medium, in molecular clouds, in the disks surrounding young stars, and in planetary systems, such as our own solar system. The static snapshots, which observations provide of dust at different stages of its life, over time, form more complete movie of the universe's complicated recycling steps.

Collecting dust on the shelf
Techno, Bass, Minimal. Yep, that about sums it up. The sound quality is good and the samples clear (for mp3). The highlight of the set is the marius_keller_remix [track 6]. This track isn't half bad and well worth a listen. But I didn't find any life in the minimalistic cosmic dust that passes for the other tracks. But then again, I may not be searching for life hard enough!
